Cataracts

A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye’s natural lens that interferes with light passing through to the retina.

According to the American Academy of ophthalmology, more than half of all Americans will have developed cataracts by age 80.

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye which can cause one’s vision to become blurry. They are common with age and can occur in one or both eyes. The clouding usually occurs slowly but can happen quickly, especially after trauma to the eye.

While cataracts are not painful, they do cause many symptoms.
